Choose healthy carbohydrates, lower your cholesterol.
Cholesterol comes from eating too many eggs, bacon, and other animal foods high in fat and cholesterol, right? Not always. First off, cholesterol works as a building block for all the cells in the body, as well as your body’s repair mechanism for damaged cells, especially the ones in your blood vessels and digestive tract. So when you consume foods that are high in additives, preservatives, colorings, and other toxic processes it leads to damaged cells. Often times the foods that cause this damage to your cells are your refined and processed carbohydrates. So your body’s response to damaged cells is to release more cholesterol into the blood stream to repair them!
Can stress, family history, alcohol consumption and lack of exercise lead to high cholesterol? Absolutely.
